It could also be from an immunization. Sometimes you can make antibodies against your own tissue, and that is a problem referred to as an auto-immune problem. ...Read more

What makes immune cells only attack one type of antigen, as opposed to multiple different antigens?

What makes immune cells only attack one type of antigen, as opposed to multiple different antigens?

It's complicated: When immune cells come into contact with a foreign substance (called an antigen), they engulf that substance and either start making antibodies to it or activate other immune cells to come into the area to fight off the foreign invader. Antigens are fairly specific so antibodies that form are also fairly specific. Sometimes mistakes occur however. Here's a link to more: http://bit.ly/1uy9lyG ...Read more
